When installed on a Mac in the Applications folder there is a Max/MSP folder and in there is a folder called Examples. You’ll find synths, samplers, effects, FFTs, etc. etc. in there. You can see other people’s patches in the cycling74.com/share folder as well as at studiotoolz.net and I’m sure a zillion other places with a google search (max standalone, max applications, etc.). This should be a good start….have fun!
To add to what lewis had to say you aint gonna get something all in one like you mentioned unless you make it yourself- which will take a little learning time. As well as the fantastic examples Lewis mentioned-
if you really wanna learn to be able to explore what max can do have a look at the tutorials and accompanying patches (which are the best resource available) – also when using the tutorials or example patches, look at the help files for the individual objects – that way you’ll get more of an idea how things work
I’d say from scratch – you’ll be talking a few weeks until you’ll be getting near the stage where you can do what you mentioned – but trust me- as projects go you are certainly not going over the top on complexity to start off like many people
